Cars for Sale

Not a particularly popular car in it’s older guises, that is to say, not in NZ.  Though there are obviouslya few around and there’s some pretty sweet ones available on at the moment that don’t frequent the site by any means.  I present you the following;

1969 Renault R10

You can check out the price and the details on trademe, here; Renault R10 Auction. Though if you click the “More” link you’ll find another few sweet Renners on auctions as well as another photo or two of the R10.  (more…)

as some of you may know, I have a fairly original SA22C RX-7 series 3 turbo tucked away which needs a bit of finishing before it can be road-registered. Now that I’m done restoring my TX3 it seems like the next logical project to move on to, and I spotted this freshly imported S3 turbo on a dealer’s yard in Invercargill during my breakfast trawl of Trademe this morning and wonder if I’d have any chance of selling mine for that much (once it’s on the road, of course).

anyway, I don’t like the paintjob (definitely doesn’t look like the factory Sparkling Black though I could be mistaken), and I certainly don’t like the wheels, but $20k is the road-legal asking price. Which bugs me a little. the fact that this guy can’t seem to shift his S3 turbo for half that tells me I’m being overly optimistic, and perhaps that’s what the dealer in Invercargill is about to find out.

Recession and all that, hem hem hemmmm.

$19,999. CHEAP.

kyteler, it’s in your neck of the woods – mayhaps you could go checks it out for me sometime? Who knows, they might even let you have a test drive!

Moar photos after the jump – but you could always click through to the auction instead and save yourself from my snarky comments ;)


because you know you want this showroom condition (and I mean that literally!) hand-assembled and Michelotti-designed 1962 Skyline Sport convertible, one of fewer than ten existing examples. Click on the thumbnail for a neat little showcase video of this car and complete listing (all in Japanese, natch).

Genuine BLRA-3 of awesome

The asking price? A cool 31.5 million yen… at the current exchange rate that amounts to a staggering 533,403 New Zealand peso. Forget buying a Murcie with your Big Wednesday winnings, just get this instead.

That is all :o

nb. For more info on the BLRA-3, check out part 3 of kyteler’s Skyline History article.

A Prince of a Deal

April 28, 2009

Those that check here frequently will notice the post before this one (by Orion) that shows an S21 Prince Skyline Super, on It’s in worse, though more complete condition than mine. The interesting part however is that it’s the very same one that I was made aware of by Ed (RatDat) and subsequently made mention of in this entry here. I got the number of where it was but never got around to making contact. Now that it’s come up and the chap is after $12000NZD, I’m quite glad I didn’t get around to ringing the guy. A bit ridiculous if you ask me, especially if you take into consideration that there was a Prince Skyway (the wagon version) recently for sale on trademe, for less and in better condition. Ah well, it takes all types.

HOWEVER! If you’re interested in a Prince Skyline. Then that’s not the one you want. You want THIS one!

For Sale: Prince Skyline Super S21D-4

For Sale: Prince Skyline Super S21D-4

Not only is it in better condition. The registration is on hold and it was last in use in 2004 and!  AND!  It’s a quarter of the price @ only $3000! So it’s bound to be in far better condition just for the fact of being used and not left sitting somewhere.  I had tried to get the money together myself but with everything finally coming together for the C110, it’s just not on the cards financially.  My loss is your gain though!
